This special-edition Challenger will come only in white or black exterior colors combined with blue stripes and the recently resurrected "Shaker " hood. Mopar performed an exhaustive list of updates on the exterior, interior and the performance of the aging muscle car.
Some of the performance mods include a new exhaust, a performance suspension system with lowering springs, and another SEMA star: the Scat Packages .
The Mopar `14 Challenger will be limited to only 100 units and will be put on sale in the second quarter of 2014.

The 2014 Mopar Challenger is available in Bright White or Gloss Black colors combined with a "Shaker style" stripe in "Mopar Blue" and a Shaker hood. Customers interested in a more distinctive look can also opt for optional Mopar Blue stripes, including an all-new ’rocker panel" body-side triple stripe with a "Mopar" logo across the doors, or an all-new A-line body-side stripe that wraps over the deck lid and includes the Mopar “Omega M” logo on the rear-quarter panel.
The model also celebrates the return of the Shaker hood with a very cool "Shaker" logo and is further distinguished by a unique Black Vapor grille surround, Black fuel-filler door and Gloss Black deck-lid spoiler with Gloss Black “Mopar Design” badge and “Mopar” quarter-glass decals.
The Mopar `14 Challenger runs a set of 20-by-8-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels with Mopar center caps.
Overall, the exterior of the Mopar `14 is simple but sexy at the same time. And that Shaker hood sure is a welcome sight.
The interior is trimmed in Dark Slate and comes equipped with performance front seats with aggressive bolsters in premium black Nappa leather. Mopar Blue accent thread and Mopar Omega M logos embroidered on the seat backs contrast nicely against the black leather.
Mopar Blue thread also finds its way onto the seams of the armrest, pistol-grip shifter boot and the three-spoke, leather-wrapped performance steering wheel.
Under the hood, the new Mopar `14 Challenger retains the 5.7-liter, HEMI V-8 engine, but we expect to see a few extra ponies on tap — likely near the 410- to 425-horsepower range — especially when you start adding in Scat Packages.
The 2014 Challenger Mopar `14 will arrive in dealerships in the second quarter of 2014, but customers can place their orders starting March 2014. Pricing will be announced at a later date. Unfortunately, Dodge will only produce 100 units before closing up the order books for good, making this the rarest Challenger ever offered.
The 2014 model year will be the final one for the current-generation Ford Mustang, so as expected, it will continue to offer the same great features it carried in 2013. The GT version is powered by a 5.0-liter, V-8 engine with an output of 420 horsepower that helps sprint the muscle car to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds.
The 2014 Mustang GT is priced from $31,695.

Camaro SS received a refresh for the 2014 model year that includes a new front fascia, hood, rear fascia and bumper cover. Under its hood, the Camaro SS keeps the same 6.2-liter, V-8 engine with 426 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. this is enough to sprint the car from 0 to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
The 2014 Camaro SS is priced from $33,055.

The new Mopar `14 Challenger is maybe one of the coolest Challenger models ever from Mopar. Of course, we would have appreciated to hear that the V-8 engine was tuned to deliver more than the standard 375 horsepower, but even so, Mopar offered enough updates to transform the Challenger into a real muscle car. Additionally, with only 100 models marked for production, this bad-boy becomes an immediate collector’s item.
- Nice exterior color combination
- Shaker hood
- Updated interior

Taking the new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker one step further, the Mopar brand revealed its new Mopar ’14 Challenger – the rarest limited-production Challenger model announced to date (only 100 to be made), with a distinct “Moparized” look. Additionally, the new Mopar ’14 is engineered to take on any combination of the three all-new “Scat Packages.”
“The Mopar ’14 is yet another factory-engineered example of how Mopar can make even limited-edition muscle cars like the Challenger even more special,” said Gorlier. “With three new ‘Scat Packages’ and more than 100 proven, quality-tested Mopar performance parts and accessories available for the Dodge Challenger, Mopar makes it simple through its one-stop customization shop.”
The Mopar ’14 Challenger features Bright White or Gloss Black exterior paint, and in keeping with tradition to its limited-edition predecessors — the Mopar ’10 Challenger, Mopar ’11 Charger, Mopar ’12 300 and Mopar ’13 Dart — is highlighted by the “Shaker style” stripe in “Mopar Blue.” For an even more customized look, two additional Mopar Blue stripe options are available, including an all-new “rocker panel” bodyside triple stripe runs with “MOPAR” across the doors; or for an even bolder look, an all-new A-line bodyside stripe that wraps over the deck lid and includes the Mopar “Omega M” logo on the rear-quarter. Enthusiasts hungering for a taste of the new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker’s legendary heritage will find satisfaction in the Mopar ’14 Challenger. Its all-new Satin Black Shaker hood scoop stands out with its raised profile and “Shaker” logo reverberating while the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 is running. Other unique design elements to contrast the Bright White paint include all-new 20 x 8-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels with Mopar center caps, a unique Black Vapor grille surround, Black fuel-filler door and Gloss Black deck-lid spoiler with Gloss Black “Mopar Design” badge and “Mopar” quarter-glass decals.
Providing a factory-customized look is the Mopar ’14 model’s Dark Slate interior embellished with unique Mopar appointments. Performance front seats with aggressive bolsters in premium black Nappa Leather feature Mopar Blue accent thread and Mopar Omega M logos embroidered on the seat backs. Additionally, Mopar Blue thread binds the seams of the armrest, pistol-grip shifter boot and three-spoke leather-wrapped performance steering wheel.
As the Mopar ’14 ownership should be as unique as the ride itself, Mopar created a serialized instrument panel plaque, customized monroney label and “Mopar” branded key fobs. The Mopar-designed vehicle tradition continues, as owners of the Mopar ‘14 Challenger will receive a custom-crafted personalized owner’s kit with a Mopar ’14 brochure, unique Mopar ’14 memorabilia, and customized items crafted with the serial number of each vehicle.
The new Mopar ’14 takes vehicle customization to new heights. Already equipped with unique Mopar Design accessories from the factory, customers of the Mopar ’14 will be able to add even more catalog accessories installed at the Mopar Custom Shop before arriving to their local dealer. And to take it even further, customers can choose to take it up another notch with Mopar accessories from their dealership.
